Featheredge Fencing Board 32x175mm GREEN Treated
Closeboard fencing remains the most cost-effective way to build a solid boundary that will stand the test of time. Closeboard fencing can also be described as shiplap or feather board fencing, but essentially these descriptions refer to the same type of construction.
Due to the versatile nature of the product, it is important to bear in mind what size fence you would like to erect and whether you will require planning permission.
The wooden Close Board fencing panels are fence panels formed from vertical feather edge boards, each partially overlapped and fixed to several rear horizontal supporting wooden rails. Close Board panels are traditionally used for boundary screening and are more sturdy than the common waney panels.
The Featheredge panels are the parts of the fence that run vertically (or top to bottom). These are attached to horizontal rails. The boards are called feather edge or featherboard, because they taper – one side is thicker and it tapers to a finer width, similar to a feather hence the name.
Generally, you can erect a fence of up to 1.95M high without planning permission, except where your fence is adjacent to a public highway. In this instance, the fence can only be up to 1m high, before planning permission is required.
The green colour you see on treated wood is produced by chemical reactions that take place between the preservative elements and the timber. Copper is still the most widely used element in wood preservatives and creates a green colour on the wood.
